Calligraphy Colours


bright gold calligraphy and ink in water

Bright Gold

A bold, bright golden ink with a glittery sheen which catches the light beautifully. 

 A true classic for weddings and special events.

black calligraphy and ink in water

Classic Black

 

Classic black Japanese calligraphy ink, which can be thinned to create a softer, watercolour-esque effect within the nib stroke.

 

antique gold calligraphy and ink in water

Antique Gold

 

This ink has a darker base colour, with bronze tones, which are overlaid by a stunningly shimmery gold glitter, so small that it looks as though the light dances across the letters.

A more classic ink than the bright gold.

silver calligraphy and ink in water

Mercury Silver

 

A beautiful silver with a grey base and bright shimmer which catches the light.

 

blue black calligraphy and ink in water

Blue-Black

 

This velvety-smooth ink looks very similar to the classic black on paper; however, the blue pigmentation means that the ink does not 'thin' to grey, which can create a much more striking contrast on the page than classic black inks.

scarlet calligraphy and ink in water

Scarlet

 

A true, bright red ink with lots of pigment. Definitely a statement colour, it is certain to catch the eye.

 

violet calligraphy and ink in water

Deep Violet

 

No shrinking violets here! This lovely purple stands out from the crowd without being too loud, and would complement spring and summer flowers beautifully.

 

vermilion orange calligraphy and ink in water

Vermilion

 

A bright orange with red hues, vermilion has been used in art for centuries.

 The perfect colour for autumnal themes and warm, earthy colour schemes.
